Last week, we had to service our kitchen gas stove caused it was hard to ignite the fire. I never serviced my kitchen stove for the last 5 years.
How do you know when it is time to service your gas stove?
When you try to ignite, it is hard to get the fire as in video below.
When you get the fire, the fire is immediately switch off after you take your hand off from the igniter.
How to service it?
At first, I tried to do it myself to clean and service my gas stove. I read the internet on how it should be done. I tried to take out the fire burner but I couldnt remove it. Afraid that I might break my kitchen gas stove so I decided to call in professional repairman.
Hire professional to service my kitchen gas stove
I called few professional repairmen. Of course as usual, I tried to get the cheapest one. I got one repairman that would service my kitchen gas stove for RM80 – RM130 only. I set appointment, unfortunately the appointment was postponed few times.
I got fed up then I got one repairman who charged higher price (RM160), after calling he immediately set appointment and kept his promise to come to my house.
How the professional service it?
First he unplugged the gas hose from the gas stove and switched on the kitchen gas stove to burn all remaining gas inside the gas stove.
Then, he removed the fire burner by using a special hammer. He did it cautiously not to break the gas stove.
After removing the fire burner, he unclogged the burners using a metal brush. Then the repairman used high pressure air to remove the hard debris inside the fire burner.
He cleaned it using soap, wiped it with cloth and let it dried.
He then scrubbed the stovetop using metal brush and some soap. He used cloth to dry the stovecop.
Afterwards he used vacuum cleaner to clean any debris around the stovetop and holes in the stovetop.
After cleaning up the fire burners and stovetop, he adjusted the fire using levers under the kitchen stove.
Finally, he spray painted my stovetop to grey and it looks like new stove!
The service took around 1 hour to complete.
My opinion on the kitchen gas stove repairman.
I highly recommended this guy as he is really professional keeping up to his promise and he knows his trade very well.
